Week 14 Recap
This week Robbie and Jake break down the biggest games of week 14. After three straight clean sweeps, what did the Dynasty do to take a win off the Dragons in game 5? The Guangzhou Charge has had a lot of promise and it finally started to shine through as they took a win from the New York Excelsior. Plus, even though Dallas lost 3 to 1 against the Philadelphia Fusion, what do their results say about the future of the team?
The New Vancouver Titans
In shocking news to the entire league, the Vancouver Titans, 2019 Pacific Division winners were mutually parted ways with the team. The split comes amid a plethora of issues stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic. The esports world waits for no one and the Vancouver Titans were quickly reformed with a group of T2 Contender’s talent. Half of the new players come from Second Wind with the others all having experienced on Academy teams. Jake explains what we should expect of the new blood and how long we should give them to acclimatize to the league before making judgments. One thing is for certain, their debut weekend against the Justice and Mayhem did not look good.
Finally Jake talks us through what to expect with this week’s hero bans. The heroes bans were Orisa for the tanks, Moira for the supports and Mei, and Tracer for the damage dealers. With this week being the last week to determine seeding for the May Tournament, every single match will matter regardless of the regular season standing. Robbie and Jake walk us through a few matches to keep an eye on.
